Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Stephen Caffrey showed a passion for acting early on, and by the time he graduated from high school, he co-founded a theater group with some friends in Chicago. In 1984, he landed a recurring part on the classic soap, "All My Children," where he appeared until 1986 and in the process earned a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Juvenile. The following year became a turning point, when he was cast as Lieutenant Myron Goldman, a lead character on CBSâ¿¿s Vietnam War drama "Tour of Duty," a groundbreaking TV series in terms of showing American combat scenes during the war; the part has remained the biggest of Caffreyâ¿¿s career. Towards the end of his "Tour of Duty" run, Caffrey appeared in a film that represented the other end of the content spectrum: "Longtime Companion," a romance set within the context of the birth of the AIDS epidemic in New York. Caffrey played Fuzzy, a lawyer who represents Howard, an actor who becomes a victim of the disease. Through the 1990s, Caffrey remained busy but was essentially limited to one- and two-episode TV stints, mainly on dramas. As his screen career faded, however, Caffrey returned his focus to the stage, where he has remained a presence ever since. ...
